I love chowhound!

We are getting ready for our vacation back east, so I posted on Chowhound to ask about good places to eat in Maine. Hello, I received numerous responses as well as 16 documents about where to eat in Maine! I guess they don’t let you leave the state without trying a lobster roll or two. And you know what? Until about a week ago, I had never even HEARD of a lobster roll! We are also going to Boston and NYC. It should be a fun and overwhelming trip.
Today I went to a free koto and shakuhachi concert. I was forced to take koto lessons during my childhood (and adulthood for a bit, too), and this ensemble played a bunch of familiar classics, so I was assaulted by some powerful flashbacks! I am so glad I no longer have to perform in recitals of any kind!
I knit a few more rows of the Becky Wannabe Sweater, but then I got sleepy and fell asleep on the couch. I’m going to try to knit some more this evening, but we might watch the Japanese version of The Ring, and I have to read the subtitles, so I don’t know how productive the knitting session is going to be. Also, it’s supposed to be really stinkin’ scary, so my hands might be shaking too much to knit!

    I live near Boston and eat in Maine all the time. Where in Maine will you be? You MUST have a lobster roll, but not all lobster rolls are created equal. There is also a funky fish place (hubby calls it a “dive” but it’s not) on one of the piers on Boston Harbor. Good fish, outdoor eating. Email me and hopefully I can steer you to the right places. 🙂

    How are you liking the Falaise? Can’t wait to see your version of the Wannabe….If I had more time, I would make another version of it…maybe someday…
    Dave (husband) has been trying to convince me to watch the Japanese version of the Ring with him. He got it off ebay a few months ago but we we’ve been a little scared to watch it. Lemme know if it’s super scary or just really scary.
    Have fun in Maine!

    Woo Hoo! Another chowhound afficiando! I have been addicted to chowhound for almost 2 years now and read the LA Board daily!
    Have fun on your trip! I grew up around Boston and I know you will have a great chowing experience there! So much good food! When I am back visiting family, I am particulaly fond of Portugues sausages and a steak and cheese grinder (sub but so much better than any in LA).

    If you’re traveling on I-95 through Old Lyme, CT (exit 70) and hungry, there are a couple of places I can recommend: take a right off exit 70 and go a few miles down the road to Hallmark Drive-in (on the right) for the best coconut-chip ice cream ever. Or take a left and then a right at the light, and stop at Anne’s Kitchen (at the A&P shopping center on your right) for a yummy snack! (they make really good muffins!)
